LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

Nontheist lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people & friends.

Members: 18
Latest Activity: Nov 16

Forum is now open for comments only, due to limited moderation.

The original creator has been absent 8 years.  She may no longer identify as Lesbian or as Atheist, but could still experience discrimination due to being listed as creator of this group.  This group does come up on internet search with this person, and her photo photo, as group creator.  We live in era when discrimination can be expected to increase on many fronts.

I moderated since that time. On several occasions, I requested that another member moderate, but was unable to find a volunteer who would actively moderate content.

Please be aware, posts left active on this group, especially discussion forum, can be hazardous to members, even ones who have been gone for many years.  In most states and countries, there is no protection for LGBT people regarding employment, housing, or employment.  The same is true regarding atheists.  Some members may not even be aware of discrimination, and may not be aware that their old posts and images are still there to come back and haunt them.  Posts and the membership list are visible on internet searches.

There has been at least one case of a member of Atheist Nexus experiencing employment discrimination due to their membership. 

Another member of Atheist Nexus was murdered in India, in 2011 (Ajita Kamal).  As far as I can tell, the perpetrator and motive were never found, but Kamal was a known atheist, and known atheists are frequently targeted for brutal killings in South Asia.

Any member who posts, without having their own photo or name on their screen name and avatar, is expressing implied agreement, by default, about the importance of privacy, even on the internet.

A controversial group needs an active moderator, who will look out for the needs and safety of the members, as much as possible in such a forum.

As has recently been done, posts on Atheist Nexus are subject to screenshots.  They are also be subject to internet search.

I recommend that interested members start a new LGBT group, so that there is no issue with long absent group creator and no longer having a moderator.  Until that time, this group is open for a rolling comment wall.  I am not able to expire comments without closing the entire comment page, due to host program (Ning) limitations on moderation.

Lots of buzz among the Nobel committee, I'm sure.

Bertold, that guy is pretty obviously looking at a brown sky.  How he can compare magnetism with human sexuality and psychology and think it's a valid comparison, I haven't the slightest!

Anyone know a good divorce lawyer?

Chemical Engineering Student: “I Used Physics to Prove Gay Marriage Wrong”

“If you bring two South Poles together you find that the two South Poles will not attract indicating that same sex marriage should not hold. A female should not attract a female as South Pole of a magnet does not attract the South Pole of a magnet. But, when you bring a North Pole of a magnet and a South Pole of a magnet they will attract because they are not the same, indicating that a man will attract a woman because of the way nature has made a female… That is how I used physics to prove gay marriage wrong.”

Spoiler: he has equally compelling arguments utilizing chemistry, biology and math.

Ruth, why do suppose there are fewer gay marriages in Philadelphia?

Carl, that makes Chicago look like the new San Francisco.

Cook County, Illinois, which includes Chicago just celebrated the 10,000th same sex marriage on August 31, 2016.

Philadelphia doesn't stand out on that map, despite our being a liberal city.

where gay couples are married in the USA, based on tax records, and incomes - with context.

Not surprising, a lot of them are in coastal states

Daniel, interesting point about out LGBT Olympians. I was pleased with the matter of fact inclusion of gay spouses, etc.

Bertold, that cartoon really had me LOL.

I you have the stomach for it, here's a rundown of Trump's supporters. Donald Trump's Extremist Allies: Who's Who At The Values Voter Summ...

These right wing "leaders" are straight out of the Middle Ages. Like gay rights activists are pawns of Satan. <eye roll> And marriage equality will  lead to “the dissolution of the republic”, an irony since a Trump victory would likely to do just that.
